I've Been Converted!
I know that just a couple posts ago, I implied that the "Nielsen Families" who decide which television shows the American public is "watching" do not really exist. And that if they do, they must either be evil androids or evil clones. I mean, who knows a Nielsen family? And look at the drivel these "people" are watching...
Well, I have to be an adult and admit that I was wrong.
I just received a postcard in the mail from Nielsen Media Research that reads:
"It is our pleasure to tell you that your household has been chosen to be a 'Nielsen Family'...for a one week TV survey!"...And it goes on to tell me that they will telephone me soon, which they did (but my roommate told them truthfully that we do not watch television). I was a little irked at him for ruining my chances of skewing their survey.
So...I must grudgingly admit that I now believe in Nielsen families.
...But does anyone else think their timing is a little suspicious? I mean, I accuse them of being a shady organization that manipulates what we continue to see on TV, and suddenly I get a postcard from them, inviting me to be part of a survey... Hmmmmm....
